Before the grey skies descended, I took a photo of the mountain with its fresh snow ~
In the front garden, the hummingbird continues to visit. In this photo, its gorget can be seen (iridescent throat feathers) if you look really closely ;)
The squirrel is wondering if and when I'm going to fill the woodpecker feeder with a new block of nuts and sunflowers. There are enough seeds and stuff on the ground, and also, perhaps it could try to remember where it buried all the acorns in the autumn!
I enjoyed watching the colours change as the sun set. I was hoping today would be clear, but it was another dull one, and around 6 Celsius. I dressed for the day, and headed out.
Something caught my eye at the first place I stopped ~
A big puddle ~
On to the estuary.
This guy was perched on the top of a dead tree ~
Overhead, three Trumpeter Swans were honking my way ~
Looks like a Merganser flying low ~
A gathering ~
Have you ever had the feeling of being watched, and then being startled when you saw the reason?
It was good to breathe in some fresh sea air, and I enjoyed my little outing.
